Top 10 Best Cars of SEMA: 2011 SEMA Show

1. RMR500 Hyundai Genesis Coupe

It’s not the wildest or even the nicest looking car at the SEMA Show, but the RMR500 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is the perfect example of all that is right with modifying cars.The aesthetic modifications are clean and simple with a carbon fiber aero kit, a lowered suspension, some nice HRE 793-RS 19-inch wheels and Brembo brakes. The crux of this built, however, is what’s under the hood, with the factory 3.8-liter V6 swapped out for the new 5.0-liter Tau V8 found in the R-Spec Genesis sedan. Making 430-hp in that car, Rhys Millen Racing added a few extra goodies including a new exhaust system, GReddy muffler, plus oil and differential coolers. Final output is rated at 450-hp.

But the best part is the fact that as the Genesis coupe and sedan use the same platform, the swap isn’t all that difficult to do, a massive hint that Hyundai may actually be planning to offer a production car like this SEMA concept in the future. They’d be crazy not to.
